showing ‘em = Good
singing about ‘em = Baaaad

Yes. I watched about 10 mins of the opening of the Oscars …thing.
[the things one will do to annoy one's loving spouse... in my defense, I just wanted to see some of the dresses... guurl stuff, yanno? ...yeah. nevermind.]

So I saw the material in question.

A] Seth MacFarlane. [Family Guy guy?] nuff sed.

2] see A


“The actor who really got inside Lincoln’s head was John Wilkes Booth,” …

“Whaaa? Is 150 years too soon?”

See A.

He also did a big musical production number [ending with the LA Gay Men's Chorus] called We Saw Your Boobs. vid here

The response? From the CA State Legislative Women’s Caucus comes this bit of …commentary.

“It is unacceptable for the entity that celebrates film-making and pop culture to have Seth MacFarlane deliver a misogynistic and degrading monologue against actresses who have shown courage in addressing thought-provoking and realistic life experiences on film.”…


[This from the body that feels it necessary to legally define hot dogs. Which they screw up by including bologna.]

    I just wanted to see some of the dresses

    An’ I just read it for the articles.
    We know your kind. You’re a Prog ghoul.
    You just wanted to see the inevitable train wreck.
    Happy, now?
    (What? Well, I am.)

    Not that that vile calumny is so far off the mark: but in this instance I lack sufficient background to catch the cultural ref.s. [I totally missed the "all black guys look alike" thing with the Eddic Murphy/Denzel "joke."]

    So, dresses.

    and Shoooooooooooz!!!

    I don’t think proud women who expose themselves on film are showing “courage.”

    Acutally, the dipshit Oscar host saw: “…your skin housing group for silicone aka ‘Iron Tits’…”

    [...Little wonder that this child prefers movies from the 30's and 40's...]

    Is that what they call them now?

    I have to keep up.

    “you have amazing courage”

    So, Victoria’s Secret is Courage?

    Somehow it seems a singular word doesn’t quite work, but courages is awkward.

    Ah, “She is so courageous!

    Who doesn’t like to be offered a little encouragement now and then? Or a lot?

    (and I almost missed this post)

    ^ As she leaned over (or slid around) to climb out the limo, you could glimpse her courage.

    We talked with a friend who said he’s watched that last 15+ years of Oscars. He gave this one “100 thumbs down”. 4 hours of “100 thumbs down” is more than anyone should be subject to.

    Anybody know what the ratings were?

    As for Michelle, the less said, the better.

    There was a time when they were worth watching.
